auliffe is challenging republican attorney general ken cuccinelli in a state that's growing fast and frequently changing party hands. kwame holman has our report on the contest, and its national implications. >> reporter: both parties are looking at virginia for clues about future elections. and that intrigue has brought a steady stream of national figures into the state for the homestretch. longtime party fundraiser and democratic candidate terry mcauliffe was joined on the trail this week by former president bill clinton. >> i want you to elect him governor because what happens in virginia is really important to this country. >> reporter: before that, mcauliffe received the endorsement of former secretary of state hillary clinton. >> supporting and voting for terry mcauliffe will make you proud of yourselves, of this commonwealth, and yes, of this country. >> reporter: virginia's attorney general republican ken cuccinelli has appeared in recent days with kentucky senator rand paul, a favorite of the tea party. >> we need champions and you need a governor who will stand up against an overbearing and ov
cuccinelli and chris christie has a wide lead over barbara buono. but virginia, new jersey say a lot of the ballots for the heart of the republican party. the clintons are really making virginia their territory. >> exactexactly. >> but it's going to show the difference between chris christie taking over a blue state and here we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to it but i think it's got to rebuild its center. i think with christie they have a good shot at rebuil
governor's race. larry, start with you. this one in virginia. terry mcauliff and ken cuccinelli. it has been all over the board, has it not. right after the government shutdown it looked like mcauliff had a wider lead. that gap seems to be kind of closing. where do they stand? what do you think? >> well, the obama care controversy has, i think, cut a couple of points off mcauliff's margin. the problem for the republican ken cuccinelli is that mcauliff ran up the score when he could during the government shutdown and raising far more money than the republicans have been able to do for ken cuccinelli. >> so frankly he could have won by 10 i think mcauliff is more likely to win by 4, 5, 6, 7, something like that. look where they are winning? they are winning where they shouldn't in a blue state with chris christie. they are losing where they should be winning in a purple state that has often voted republican, virginia. they have got to look at their two candidates, chris christie and ken cuccinelli and figure out what worked and what didn't, and how can we apply those lessons to 2016? >> n
in new jersey while ken cuccinelli is expected to go down bad in purple virginia. will the right learn its lesson or decide cuccinelli wasn't right wing enough. >>> and even with all the problems of the health care rollout, you want the guys giving health care or the one who isn't even trying. the republican plan is no plan at all. >>> and ann colter says it's not the right that's pushing the birther notion. it's someone else. this is "hardball," the place for politics. so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger. as your life changes, fidelity is there for your personal economy, helping you readjust along the way, refocus as careers change and kids head off to college, and revisit your investments as retirement gets closer. wherever
cuccinelli. in new jersey, chris christie seems to be coasting to re-election in a big blue state. despite those revelations in "double down." and he's making no secret that he's at least looking at a presidential run. peggy noonan, you spent some time with governor christie this week. >> yeah, he was beginning his big seven-day bus tour of new jersey to, you know, to end on election day. i found him to be an example of the lost joy, the lost pleasure of politics, he's out there having fun, they love him, he's going to win by 20, 25, whatever, points, he's feeling triumphant, that's a rare thing to see in a republican these days. so, it was wonderful to witness. let me tell you something that i have been thinking about with regard to new jersey and virginia, new jersey is about to, we believe, it looks like, re-elect a red state figure who is pro-life and he's about to win by a lot of points as it appears from the poll. ken cuccinelli, down south in virginia, he's a pro-life guy who's expected according to the polls to go down. so, he's expected to go down in a mixed state and christie is
, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is

terry mcauliffe leading ken cuccinelli by just two points in the virginia governor's race. newport university has a poll, and the spread in that is seven. the real clear politics average of all polls is almost eight in that race. we'll have complete coverage on election day. the president has invested millions of your dollars into solar. we'll tell you in one case what you have to show for it. >>> speaking of big money, you'll be appalled to learn what some federal workers are doing while you're paying them overtime. "the grapevine" is next. >>> now, some press from the political grapevine. you're paying almost $9 million to federal workers who are tasked such as watching tv, surfing the internet, and taking care of personal business. and that's just at six homeland security department offices. it has to do with abuse of overtime that has almost become institutional. a letter to the president warns these cases may be just the tip of the iceberg and quote, such abuse of overtime pay is a violation of the public trust and a gross waste of scarce government funds. dhs is reviewing its
moving around the country. scott walker will join republican ken cuccinelli on the final days and senator rand paul will be back in the old dominion after what can be described as a less than stellar week. he is sort of a tea party guy who is more acceptable to the establishment got this front page treatment in the national journal. this week he has been trying to beat back plagiarism charges. >> to disagree on how you footnote things and people do it differently in an academic paper than they do in a public speech. if we presented any of these for publication that had footnotes and a speech if people don't take the time to footnote things. it was clear that the plot line was not something i created. i department claim i created the movie. that's what is absurd. the plot line belongs to one person. the screen writer and i gave him credit for that. >> the office told nbc this. in the course of a 25-minute speech, he described the 34r09 of a movie and attributed it to the primary sources and no way saying it was his own thoughts or ideas. it has been submitted for academic tubication it wou
